Patriots-Lions Fourth Quarter Thoughts

* Pats offense starting to wear down the Lions D a little bit, they need to step up and make a play here.

* Big play again to Branch, this time for a score that gives the Pats a 31-24 lead after a 22-yard score.

* Lions still hitting some plays, as Hill continues to keep his eyes downfield. He’s over 200 yards throwing with a TD and a pick.

* Offensive pass interference kills a 22-yard pass play that would have given the Lions a big first down.

* Wow, now a facemask penalty on third down, though it wouldn’t have been a first down, Jeff Backus didn’t give them a shot with that penalty.

* CBS pointing out the tough day Smith has had in the secondary, that’s an understatement.

* A little trickery on third down converts for the Pats, as a direct snap to Danny Woodhead pays off with a first down. Lions offside on the next play, they are making too many mistakes to win this game right now.

* That was a killer drive, there’s a reason this team is 2-8, and that drive was a big reason.

* Another pick, as McCourty makes his second of the day to put the nail in the Lions coffin.

* Seven straight Thanksgiving Day losses for Lions.
